Thrush

Q: I am wondering what you can tell me about thrush. I have 4 horses in a field that still has damp areas from all the rain this summer. I have noticed a slight smell coming from their feet and I think it might be thrush. How can I tell if it is thrush and if so what is the best way to treat it. Also what happens if it is not treated?

A:Thrush is a fungal infection of the frog.  It is seen most often in wet conditions or in overgrown crack filled feet.  Clean the foot and trim away any excess frog and treat the dried foot with a topical antifungal agent like Coppertox or Coppercare.

Thanks, Dr. Domoslai, DVM
